After wandering the universe since the big bang, a cosmic monopole is finally trapped by the enormous magnetic fields inside the giant ATLAS detector in CERN, Geneva. The monopole absorbs particles from the LHC beams and grows until it is transformed into a micro black hole.
The black hole burns its way out of the detector and swallows a scientist. Moments later, time stops almost everywhere in the Universe. Only ATLAS engineer Declan O’Donoghue is not frozen in time. He has been struck by a fragment of mysterious blue crystal which appears to have emerged from the black hole. Each fragment is surrounded by a small bubble of time.
So begins “Cronclast”, the ultimate time-travel adventure by Wyken Seagrave.
Declan sets out on a mission to travel back to the big bang in a desperate attempt to restart time. Meanwhile the scientists left on Earth have a different plan: they want to fuse crystals together to create a huge bubble that will revive the whole planet. They ask the diplomats at the United Nations in Geneva for permission to go ahead, but they cannot agree among themselves and an international crisis develops.
Cronclast, the greatest adventure in the history of the universe.
